A 2017 TRIPLL Webinar Series Presentation Presenter: Joseph Kable, PhD, University of Pennsylvania People often choose to pursue long-term, future goals over short-term immediate ones, then abandon this pursuit before achieving that future goal. Dr. Kable will discuss how this failure to persist toward delayed goals can arise from ones expectations regarding uncertain future goals. He will talk about his work showing the critical role of uncertainty in persistence towards future outcomes. Then he will examine how different forms of uncertainty are encoded in the brain and affect other neural representations during voluntary persistence.
